Hungary rejects EP amendment calling for the extradition of Nikola Gruevski


A minister of the Hungarian Government dismissed a resolution from the European Parliament on Macedonia, which includes a call from the Green Party to have former Macedonian Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski extradited back to the country. Gruevski sought and received political asylum in Hungary as victim of political persecution after the numerous criminal charges which the left wing authorities of Macedonia initiated against him.

– The European Parliament has no connection with the extradition and the asylum of the former Macedonian Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski to Hungary, and the asylum procedure is not a political but a legal matter. They attack Gruevski because he built a fence and attempted to stop illegal migration. The pro-immigration parties in the European Parliament have shown once again that the migrants are what’s important to them and they go after everyone who protects the borders. The European Parliament should not poke its nose where it doesn’t belong, said minister Zoltan Kovacs, who is also spokesman of the Government.
